  1. Hi guys, I am looking at replacing my 525i high mileage N52b25 engine which suffers from the dredded lifter clatter and excessive oil consumption to a N52b30. From what I can see both the 525 and 530 share the same ZF6HP transmission, radiator + other ancillarys and are practically 1/1 identical apart from displacement. My question is apart from swapping over and possibly coding the b30 DME and CAS module - is there anything else members would think is a stumbling block? Thanks in advance Cheers!
  2. Good used condition, perfect upgrade for non motorsport BMW or replace damaged ones. These wheels are 18x8 all around and tires are a 245/40/18 A few kurb marks as showen in pictures. Off BMW 550i and will fit all E60 bmws plus many more models. Continental Contact Sport 5 tires with approx. 4.5mm and Dunlop tires with approx. 3mm of tread. $525.00 for Bimmersport members
  3. Any e46 m3's for sale or maybe up for sale soon that are not on Trademe? Would prefer manual, stock, and under 150,000km Ideally under 25k Chur chur
  4. Is this still for sale or has someone got a bargain already?!

    Agh. Thought I saw it driving through Te Awanga a couple of Sunday's ago...looks amazing ......
  6. Kyu, I can assure you it won't LOL
  7. Well put mate, I personally find it a bit of a laugh more than anything
  8. BTW Andy mate, if I sell my Sl (2 People coming to look at it tomorrow) ( https://www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=887069519 ) You can bet my bottom dollar I'm coming down to Welly and having a good look at it! (E34) Any discount given for a fellow Bimmersport and ECC member? LOL
  9. f**k, if thats worth 5k your e34 is worth 15k!... As much as i like e38's they just dont look good "pimped" even if it is a schnitzer kit...IMO of course I wouldn't give him 3k for it.....Ok maybe thats a little harsh lol This is almost as much as a rip off http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-886312357.htm What drugs are these e38 owners taking because I want some!
  10. Even if It did at the end of the day its still a E38 priced at 28k....extremely small if not non existent market. As most of the guys here if they would rather that or a m5...I think I know the answer... (E38..nah..lol)
  11. Yes however the price that he wants for it is a joke, and anybody who purchased it would be getting "ripped off" as it is 20-25k over market price!
  12. http://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/used-cars/bmw/auction-888125194.htm Wow, just wow... I merely 24k overpriced lol
  13. Very nice, arnt the 540i E60 faster than the 545i?
